Q: Acer Active Pen problems - Acer Aspire R13 (Model ...

My acer active pen is not working consistently. The screen recognizes it sometimes, and other times it does not. The only way I can get it to recognize is by power cycling the pen (taking the battery out and putting it back in), or by power cycling the laptop. I replaced the battery so I know it is not a battery issue. I have an Acer Aspire R13 (Model #R7-371T), and recently upgraded to Windows 10. I was having this problem earlier with Win 8.1, but it seems to have gotten worse with Windows 10. I have updated to all the most recent drivers. Very frustrating. Any thoughts?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have purchased a new Aspire R13, with acer recommended Active pen for this model. Touch pad is flicky, and wobbles in its place (very uncomfortable to use) The Laptop screen resolution and brightness are great and it is very responsive to finger touch, and capacitive pens.However when I use the active pen, it works fine for about 5 minutes and then It starts to jump and skips and then the pen stops working. After a restart Pen starts to work but same thing happens. When I hover the pen over the screen it clearly sees it but the movement is not smooth, similarly when I am using the pen to draw it skips and jumps a lot. I have calibrated my screen and still the problem persists. Also ACER claims palm rejection, and the palm rejection does NOT work at all. Has anyone had the same problems? or does your Active pen work perfectly, I cannot determine whether the problem I have is from the Pen or the Screen. Any suggestions? or comments?

A:Acer Aspire R13 (R7-371T) Active Pen problems.

I sent my previous unit back and got a new one from microsoftstore. It seems the problems I had were unit specific. This new one works fine, the touchpad in the last laptop clearly had a physical problem since it wobbled and didn't recognize multi-gesture. I am happy with this one, it has a updated synaptics driver, not the newest one (there is a newer Synaptics driver on Acer website for this laptop which still doesn't install) but it works. Contacted tech support, and asked why the updates don't install it seems this model is still a work in progress. They are updating drivers, power managments software etc. Acer's Active pen works fine in ONENOTE, because the application rejects capacitive touch and only works with digitizer input. but in other apps palm rejection is not working. I'm going to exchange my pen as well and see if the problem is with the pen or not.

Hi there. I am just wondering about my notebook laptop which is an Acer Aspire 5733z model. And this is a really new model as well that just came out I believe this March.

Guys, I have a problem with my Acer laptop Aspire 1640 and request help. The problem is the m/c hangs when i put on the battery. I cannot boot. It works fine on AC mains with the battery removed ! So I've removed the battery and just work on AC mains supply.

Few weeks ago I had formatted the HDD and lost all original drivers that were preinstalled by the company. However, I now have a CD copy of all the original drivers with me. On AC mains, when I install them, they do but on a reboot they all disappear. The Wireless wont work etc. The display settings go back to default.

What could the problem be and how to solve it? Can anyone help me? My OS is XP.

Appreciate any feedback on the above

Hi there. I would like to know on how to enable my Wake on Lan in my bios settings. For my computer I have an Acer Aspire 5733Z model with Windows 7 Home Premium on it. I already know though that I already have Wake on Lan on my network adapter for my Local Area Network. It looks like that I have all the necessary options for my network adapter. I have "Allow This Device to Wake the Computer, and I have other options as well there. But when I went into my bios setup, I couldn't find the option for my Wake on Lan.

But it could be there, but I have no idea on where to look, though. And I do not even have a Power Management tab in my bios, either. My bios setup is very kind of limited to it's settings. I also flashed and upgraded my bios to a later date, but it didn't help still. It looks like that I have the same settings there! Or maybe I can update my network Lan drivers as well. I will have to see what happens first.

But I already know that the Aspire 5733Z has Wake on Lan for sure. But my computer did not come with a instruction manual either. Oh well. But there is actually a way to turn on my Wake on Lan, I believe. I think that there is an option for S3 PCI device in the bios, or something like that. So can you help me out here on this? Because any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. All righty? Well anyway, so thank you very much. And please get back to me as soon as possible on this issue that I am having. Because this is important to me. ... Read more

Hello jrdngreenberg3 and welcome to Seven Forums.

According to the Acer download link below, the latest BIOS version for your machine is 1.07. You can double check that by selecting notebook > Aspire > 5733z and then clicking the BIOS tab.

Download

There seems to be quite a few theads on this forum concerning wake-on-lan problems. Perhaps one of those other theads will offer you a solution. Also, have you checked your power plan settings?

Hello,,,,
Thanks for your help, time, and advice!!!

Looked all around (acer.com, driver.com, this forum, etc.) and had no luck to find if there is an available BIOS upgrade for the following:

Acer/Aspire (1996) Model 5133SR
BIOS ID : ACR25E00-MOC-960730-R01-B3
BIOS Version 2.1

So far the BIOS ID seems to indicate this is a V55LA-1 ACER Motherboard. Motherboard documents with specs., jumper settings, and Layout diagram have been found.

Does anyone have any idea if there is an avialable BIOS Upgrade and where to get it, plus the available flasher.exe????
THANKS for your advice, help, and time!!!

Hello, my new Acer Aspire Notebook has my IE homepage stuck to global.acer.com and I can't change it through any of the IE options (Use Blank, Use Current, or typing it in manually - I'm trying to set it to Google).

I went to this page to solve the problem: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q320159 (Home page setting changes unexpectedly, or you cannot change your home page setting).

As per Microsoft's instructions, I tried changing the "Start Page" value in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main," but I got the following error: "Cannot edit Start Page: Error writing the value's new contents." There was no "Default_Page_URL" entry in there.

I was able to change the "Default_Page_URL" value to "Google.com" under "HKEY_ LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" and the "Start Page" value in there was already set to "http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd={SUB_PRD}&clcid={SUB_CLSID}&pver={SUB_PVER}&ar=home"

The "Default_Page_URL" and "Start Page" entries don't exist in the "HKEY_USERS\Default\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" key.

Lastly, the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel" subkey doesn't exist either.

The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742, IntelCore i3-380M
I am attaching a few pictures of what comes on the screen when I turn it on.
Even in safe mode it does not let me log in, it attempts repairs, it fails and then goes to the black screen with the white cursor.
If I try to start windows normally it loads the logo and then goes to the black screen.
Yesterday, in an attempt to do repairs it was replacing invalid security drivers or something like that and it was taking ages so I had to turn it off.
For the last week it took very long to start up, failing to configure windows but it would eventually let me log in.
Since yesterday I am only getting the black screen. it is windows 7 by the way.

My system is roughly 5 months old. I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to 7 home premium. There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to deep hibernation. The only way to wake it was to unplug the power from the tower. I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers, to finally reinstalling everything. No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer. I just got it back from Acer's repair depot. They had to replace the motherboard, hard drive, and fans on the system. They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue. I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold, the hibernation thing started again! It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory. Now it seems stable running Vista. I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell. Is it me or is Acer systems flakey?

Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows 7 without having to format every week? I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly. Sometimes it won't even turn on. Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows 7?

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

Hey There

First of all: I'm a studend, so I can't speek good english, cause I live in Switzerland (plz write in German if you can )

So my Problem:

I've found a Acer Aspire 5920G with Windows Vista. This was so slow and annoying . So I deleded the whole OS and installed Win 7 Home Premium x64. Now I'm searching some drivers for my Notebook. My biggest Problem is the sound driver.
In Vista, there was a tool called "Acer eAudio Manager". I want to install it, because you can switch the equalizer to movie, music and game (and it sounds awesome with the bassbooster=D). I've downloaded the driver from the website and there was a error:

"This software can only be installed in authorized machine"

what can I do to install this tool? Some other tools, like acer power management or acer enet management, works great.

I thought I ask in this forum, because there were some good topics about the mouspad and synaptic of the 5920G (wich helped me=D)

I hope you understand my question and can help me

Now some dots are going around for a few seconds and i get that: http://imgur.com/a/EpfjtIt means : "You cant control that device" . the same happens when i change intensity of ABS - nothing changes however it can write that it changed. On the screen "high" level is turned on but you see that it is a lie. I am using it on Admin accoutn of course.I reinstalled Acer Quick Access but nothing changed and i cant use Acer Bluelight Shield. Rest of options of Acer Quick Acces works (Wifi and Bluetooth).Thanks for reading!

Not sure why this happened but you can try rolling the system back to a previously working configuration. Try the steps to roll it back at http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37096/~/windows-10%3A-restore-windows-from-a-restor.... If Windows Updates ran prior to this happening something could have installed that caused this. Restoring it back like this should resolve the issue.

So at first i thought it my keyboard wasn't being seen by windows 10. but sometimes after holding the bluetooth button an unknown device appears that appears to be my keyboard. yet when i type in the connection code it doesn't respond and then the device no longer is showing.

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire V5-551. I forgot the password to my BIOS, so I disassembled the laptop and removed the CMOS battery for 30 minutes. Then I turned it on and noticed that it no longer boots into Windows, it won't let my go into BIOS  (still asking for the password) and it won't let me choose boot devices or go into recovery mode / factory reset. It's stuck on the "acer explore beyond limits" screen. Can anyone help me?

I wasted a lot of ink on this problem, by printing out a lot of information on it. But I found out that this is an easy fix. So I guess the wasted ink was not wasted after all, on one of these printouts was the solution. In the bio settings there is an option to change the default SATA Mode of the Boot Drive. The default is [AHCI] Mode Advanced Host Controller Interface. This needs to be set to [IDE] Mode using F5 key to change it over. As soon as I did this operation it let Windows Install and Format the drive with the correct size of the drive partition. (After setting the mode, do not forget to Save and Exit) I'm going to add this just because (ACER was no help on this problem and does not even have the driver's for my Acer Model on there web site) NOT GOOD ACER I hope this helps a lot of people that have had this problem. Later Fred

Hi. I cannot download Acer Care Center for some reason. I have tried via wired and wireless connectivity with no joy. The AcerCareCenterCheckTool prompts Download failed. Please check your network connection and try again. I have tried run as admin, troubleshoot compatibility to which it fails each time. The only thing that does change is when running the program sometimes it prompts Your model is supported. Do you want to download Acer Care Center? to which I press Yes then downloading... dots keep moving until Download failed. Please check your network connection and try again. appears. Is there a direct link to the actual setup file? Also just to note. I found W10 run a lot smoother when I previously installed W10 carrying over apps etc. from 8.1. This fresh install if you like, upgrade carrying over nothing has killed boot times which were considerably faster previously. Have I lost any vital software, drivers etc. carrying over nothing then manually installing drivers from Acer supports site?

I finally found a soluation after months of wondering why this is happening. It's my Virgin Media connection, the modem/router as when I connected to my phones wifi, teethering, Acer Care Center instantly updated so something within Virgin Medias network is blocking connectivity. I did try the Virgin Media's router as cause by diabling firewall etc. but with no joy I gave up but didn't try another connection until just now with tethering where as stated problem is sorted. I will report this to Virgin Media and post back anything relevant to this.

Hi there
You need to tell your computer that you want to boot from a CD. When you first turn on the computer, do you see something along the lines of "Press F2 for setup" or something like that? if you do, go into the setup and change the "Boot Order" so that your CD drive appears higher up in the list. If you cannot figure that out, search for "Boot from CD" in google for tutorials.

Hello, I was wondering if somebody could help me with some problems I'm having with my Acer Aspire, run on Windows 7. So here's the problem, about a couple months ago, I went to go onto my computer, turned it on, and I noticed it was acting a bit slow, so as I go to click on the internet, it freezes up. And I wait for it for a good ten minutes to see if it will do anything, but no. So I was forced to crash it. I turn it back on, and it does the same thing! It was very frustrating. So I used "Safe Mode with Networking" so I could do all my basic internet stuff. But I tried to go back on regular and see if I could create a restore point. It restarted and everything fine, but only for about ten minutes. And I've tried and tried to do it again, and I just can't take it anymore! I don't have the money to have anyone fix it. I just need some help. I don't know what's wrong with it. If someone could please tell me if they know how to fix this problem, I would GREATLY appreciate it. I need it to look for jobs.

Thanks
